Egyptian singer and songwriter Dina El Wedidi and her band will perform at the Cairo Opera House's Fountain Theatre on 12 October.

El Wedidi, who opened the Bibliotheca Alexandrina's Summer Festival last month, will perform songs from her repertoire, which is rooted in Egyptian heritage but also features wider African and global influences.

El Wedidi will perform other popular tracks, such as El-Sirah, Kotr El-Wagaa and Fi Belad El-Agayeb, in addition to Tedawar w-Tergaa, re-launched in an acoustic version last month and dedicated to its late lyricist Mido Zoheir.

The artist has worked with music heavyweights the likes of Brazilian Gilberto Gil, Egyptian Fathy Salama, and Palestinian singer-songwriter Kamilya Jubra.

El Wedidi's talent was discovered with El Warsha Theatre Troupe, which was her gate to a series of fruitful solo and collaborative projects.

Egypt resumed public cultural activities in July as part of the country's cautious reopening following the COVID-19 lockdown, with all events held under strict measures that include social distancing, obligatory face masks, and sanitising.

Programme:
Monday 12 October at 8 pm
Fountain Theatre, Cairo Opera House, Zamalek
